Also, can we get an Unthinkable sorceror Doom, all clad in the skin of his first love?

 But seriously I would totally buy a ML Hitler

Ah Yes. "Marvel's Hitler".

Marvel's Timely's Hitler

Unfortunately we all know certain Fwooshers hold “their” Hitler close to their heart.

Decided. Marvel's “their” Hitler. BAF 100. Do it, Dwight.

That's it -- decided! I feel like we're all doing important work here. You're welcome, Hasbro.

You know, honestly, they're probably not even considering this milestone at all. And we might already know what the BAF is. Like Odin, on the leak list.

One of the few positives of all the recent Fwoosh upheaval is that most of “those guys” either aren’t around anymore, or are being quiet. It’s definitely a relief in the DC forum, which used to be an absolute cesspool for that kind of crap.

But as far as an actual 100th BAF, I feel like something long-requested like Lockjaw, or special and unique like original “Marvel Monster” Groot, would be pretty great. Although the best thing would be a build-a-Kirby. Just Jack Kirby. Yeah, that would be my #1 choice.

Yeah, I'm not sure it's a good idea to scatter Jack Kirby head, arms and legs across the packaging. It didn't really work out with Stan Lee BAF.

 Lockjaw is OK choice, but, I don't know... I want something special.

Have the guys acknowledged they know BAF #100 is on the horizon? I want to say one of them may have said it at a con but I don't remember.

My guess (or desire) is BAF 100 will be the rare and highly coveted Dragon Man from the Toybiz days updated with an all-new sculpt with proper proportions and closer to scale.

There is no way the shared blood between Kirby and Marvel would allow a Jack figure.

Whatever gets me a Marvel Legends-compatible Jack Kirby figure is fine with me. I have a Hood body just waiting for Benty to make a head that I can slap on it.

Slightly off topic: anyone who’s a big Kirby fan should check out Tom Scioli’s Kirby bio comic. His Stan Lee one as well for that matter.

Don't most people consider the 1st "Marvel Comic" to be FF #1 in 1961? They wouldn't refer to themselves as "Marvel" for a few more issues after that even, but that is clearly the direction change for the company.

Yes, FF #1 is the first Marvel comic.  Stan was calling it Marvel from that issue on, and they put "MC" on the cover to designate that as you can see in the following pic below the comics code symbol and above the 10 cents box in the upper right.  And as you noted they didn't start fully spelling it out as "Marvel Comics" until the next year; the first FF issue with it on the cover was #14 shown second below.

Shit, that Mole Man Monster needs to be a BAF.  Probably need to spread it out across 3 waves with some figures coming with just a forearm, lol.
